The Dead get loose in Tuscaloosa. Even with Alabama Getaway a couple of years or so down the road, the Heart of Dixie was not a frequent stop on the tour, was it?

"this show is sick! Everything is tastey all around.

SICKEST jack a roe ive ever heard."

What I really want to know, though, is when did the word sick start being used as a superlative adjective? Call me a traditionalistic old fogey, but this just doesn't work for me.

They tried "crippled", but it didn't go over so well.

As in: "Man, that show was freakin' crippled!"

It was thought that "sick" as a little less harsh.

I first heard it on the beach in San Diego in 1996 -- I thought it was so funny I started saying it. Now I say it often just like you.

"That show was sick yo."

Hum-dinger of a show, to use an antiquated baseball term. (For home run).

This Jack a Roe is as good as advertised--my favorite, in fact, and is the very one Phil chose for his "from the Phil Zone" CD released a few years back.

If you like the Mosque from 5/25 (yet another 30th ann. show soon to be celebrated) you'll like this show in very much the same way.

It's got a mellow groove throughout that just flows with ease and mastery. Good ol' '77 strikes again with this show.

This show is terminal, dog.
